Caribbean Acroporid Genomes
Through a collaboration with Dr. Eli Meyer at Oregon State University, the Weis Lab sequenced the transcriptomes of the anemone A. elegantissma, and corals F. scutaria, M. cavernosa and S. hystrix. These anthozoans were selected based on previous and future research projects in the Weis lab. In the analysis of these transcriptomes, we constructed one of the first cnidarian phylogenomic trees with currently available "omic" data (Kitchen et al. 2015, G3).
